    It’s a busy time for the British royal family as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle prepare to tie the knot. And like any guest in attendance of a wedding, you’ll need to dress for the occasion. And one thing that literally stands out at British royal weddings are the hats and fascinators adorning guests’ noggins.

    While hats have fallen out of style for everyday fashion, they have remained as tradition at fancy shindigs like royal weddings, horse races, and other British formal occasions.

    This is why I love vox. They always comes up with the most absurd and unwanted topic packed in the most amazing way that somehow becomes the one information you never knew you needed. Keep up the great work!

    "She's a great hat-wearer."Boy, now. In what other profession is this a qualification? "Must wear it well."

    What I love is everyone saying they don't care about the wedding. Yet they cared enough to watch the video and comment.
